Snowy April 16

Arlene went to the endodontist for a root canal today. I went to the CVS to fill her antibiotic prescription, and to Whole Foods to get her some yoghurt and bananas, and potatoes and codfish to make fish chowder for low-chewing dinner.

The weather forecast had predicted rain today and snow for farther west and north, but around 11:30 we noticed that it was snowing outside. By the time I was home from the errands there was more than a dusting of snow. This is not the latest in the season we’ve had snow, but it’s one of only a few times we’ve had any this late in the Boston area.

The snow peas in my vegetable garden came up just in time to be covered with snow, but I don’t think they’ll mind. That’s why they’re called snow peas!
